Salah signs new five-year contract with Liverpool

Mohamed Salah has signed a new five-year contract at Liverpool.

The Egyptian committed his future to the club after a sterling performance last season in the English Premier League. Salah scored 44 goals in 52 appearances.

With the new deal, Salah will be at Anfield until 2023 and there’s no release clause in the contract.

The deal will see him become the highest earning player in the club’s history. His salary is thought to include incentives which could take his earning to beyond £10m per year.

Jürgen Klopp said the new deal is a reward for Salah’s performance in the 2017/18 season.

“I think this news can be seen for what it is; rewarding a person who performed and contributed greatly for the team and the club last season,” he said.

“It demonstrates two things very clearly also – his belief in Liverpool and our belief in him.

“Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment.

“The key thing to remember is the best thing about Mo is that he never sees himself as being more important than the team or anyone else within it. He recognises his teammates and this club helped him achieve individual success last season. He sees the individual awards come because he is part of something bigger that is special.

“Mo reflects where we are as a team, I think. Last season was special with many special moments – but we want more.

“We want to be more successful and achieve more together – as the supporters sang so loudly, ‘we’re never gonna stop’. This has to be the attitude individually and collectively.”

Salah’s golden boot-winning tally of 32 EPL goals was a record for a 38-game season. He was also named the PFA player of the year and the football writer’s player of the year.
